Review: As a writing professor and published author of over 50 books, bestselling author Jack Gantos knows what he's talking about when it come to writing. In this newest book, Writing Radar: Using Your Journal to Snoop Out and Craft Great Stories, Gantos really gives valuable information on the best way to use a journal to find and keep track of all the quirky, weird, and wonderful events of daily life. While geared towards young children to teens, Writing Radar can be adaptable for adult writers too! With lots of examples, stories from his own personal writing journey, and a breakdown of the writing process in a simplistic way, Writing Radar is an essential guide for any aspiringwriter. Recommended for grades 4 and up! *Received a DRC for an honest review.
